See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This 17th-century stone and granite walle dpub with original dark and heavy low beams, sits below Caradon Hill offering dramatic views of the east Cornwall landscape. The pub started as a mine captain's house and pay office when the nearby Glasgow Mine was in operation. Miners were paid in part with Crow's Nest 'money' and the only way to spend it was to buy ale in the pay office! The pub still has the bell to summon the miners on the outside wall. There are two bars; the main one is cosy and friendly - mind your head on the vast collection of stirrups and other horsey bits! It also hosts an old settle from the former village chapel. The second bar is used mainly for dining, and there is an outside patio area with seating for al fresco drinking. Food is freshly prepared and available 1200-1430 & 1800-2130, with a separate evening menu. Live bands feature on occasions as advertised locally. The pub is allegedly haunted by four or more ghosts - read the story in the bar.
